Data Mining and SSIS A marriage made in heaven (or Redmond at least) Allan Mitchell SQL Server MVP
Who am I SQL Server MVP SQL Server Consultant Joint author on Wrox Professional SSIS book Worked with SQL Server since version 6.5 www.SQLDTS.com and www.SQLIS.com www.SQLDTS.comwww.SQLIS.com Partner of SQL Know How
Today’s Schedule I only have 30 minutes ! Why do they go well together How do they do it?
Why do they go well together? Easy – SSIS moves and cleans data – SSIS can manipulate heterogeneous data – Data Mining requires clean data (duh!) – Data Mining requires a given structure for the data
What do you get? Tasks – Analysis Services Execute DDL Task – Analysis Services Processing Task – Data Mining Query Task Transformation – Data Mining Query Transformation – Term Extraction Transform – Term Lookup Transform Destination – Data Mining Model Training Destination
Analysis Services Execute DDL Task Allows you to run DDL statements against SSAS Includes Dropping, Creating, Altering DM objects
Analysis Services Processing Task Process objects on SSAS This includes your Mining Structures and models
Data Mining Query Task Query one or more mining models/structures Return singleton or flattened cellset Store results to table (OLE DB) or variable.
Data Mining Query Transform Perform a DM query against a model Return result into the pipeline
Text Mining Transforms Perform text based extractions/lookups against pipeline data Uses Clustering and NLP underneath to do this
Mining Model Training Destination Take data from the pipeline and use it to train a mining model.
